Oyo State Government has expressed its readiness to use the Better Education Service Delivery take-off grant to educate about 170, 536 out-of-school children in 23 local government areas and to ensure their retention in schools.

The Chairman, State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr Nureni Adeniran, said this after a two-day interactive session held in Ibadan on the implementation of World Bank-assisted BESDA for all, on Monday.

Adeniran reiterated Oyo State Government’s resolve to enrol out-of-school children in public schools, saying the programme would cater for hawkers and almajiris in the State.

“Despite all the hiccups, I strongly believe the essence of BESDA, which is to effectively take all the out-of-school children off the streets and draw them back to schools, will be accomplished in Oyo State,” he said.

He stated that the state government would ensure that a total of 62, 733 hawkers were taken back to school while 107, 803 almajiris would be taken off the streets in the Oke-Ogun area of the state.

He added that the board had adopted strategies that would ensure that all out-of-school-children returned to school before year 2022.

“Oyo State as one of the participating states will ensure that all out-of-school-children are brought back to schools within the years of the programme implementation in the country as a whole,” he stated.

The Head, Coordination Support Team, BESDA, Iro Umar, said Oyo State had a good team to implement the BESDA project.

Oyo State Government will receive an initial BESDA grant of $3m to commence the programme in Ona-ara, Kajola, Surulere, Saki West, Akinyele, Olorunsogo, Iseyin, Saki East, Oyo West, Ogbomosho South, Ogbomosho North and Iwajowa.
